As I settle down to read the last 200 or so submissions for the Sean O'Faolain competition that arrived in the post this morning (very heavy box!), I got this email from the wonderful Alison MacLeod, and thought I'd post it here:
We are still accepting submissions for the new, international journal Short Fiction in Theory and Practice until the end of this month. As some of you know, we're aiming to publish a terrific range of pieces -- from writers, academics and editors.
If you feel you might have an idea to develop or a piece that is already taking shape, please see the Call for Submissions. We'd be pleased to hear from you. Although the standard submission length is, as you will see, 4,000 words (plus) for articles, we're also happy to consider shorter pieces. If you'd like to discuss an idea or a piece briefly before submitting, you're very welcome to email Ailsa Cox, the Principal Editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org .
This sounds like it is going to be a very interesting publication, a worthy addition to the short story scene. If you have an idea, do contact them.
